Freesyle Cruising is not for everybody

Room Type: Inside

Jewel of the Sea. A Freetyle cruise. August 19 to 27... Great ports of calls. Excursions were cancelled.... Too bad. Not enough time to go to Rome or to Florence. The excursion desk was very unfrienly, nasty and did not try to accomodate the customers. Took an excursion to the Cinque Terre that was a great excursion. Magnificent views and good guide (hired from the outside).
Food was excelent and enough for everyone. But, 4 restaurants charge a fee.... Is good if you want to get away from the 750 plus kids in the ship. Parents did not care... they were up until 1 in the morning.... they invaded the jacussi and the pool. You should advise people of the condition that is a ship for kids with parents that did not discipline them. I love kids but they should be controlled and not all over the floors in the different areas at night. and even the crew did not care and let them get away with anything.... And they go FREE.
Reception Desk was very good and the shows were great
Until next time... but not FREESTYLE!

Pros: The Ports of Call

Cons: Freestyle cruising... too many infants on board, kids took over the areas of the ship, parents did not care... a caos

Messina, Sicily
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
No time to go to Rome .......... Stay in Civitavecchia and shop
